Introduction to Cosmetic Formulation and Technology pdf free download
Cosmetics and personal care products have played an essential role in our lives for thousands of years. Today, an increasing number of products are aimed at special target audiences and gain importance in groups that have not received as much attention in the past. Innovation, creative thinking, and problem solving are essential skills needed in the cosmetic industry. However, the most important skill of all is a strong foundation and basic understanding of the main principles. Cosmetic science is a delicate blend of a variety of knowledge, including chemistry, biology, formulation science, pharmacology, marketing, and law. Until now, these knowledge bases were presented in separate books written for specific professional audiences. Non-professionals were often left with no options to find a single, comprehensive source containing all the information they need.

This book seeks to bridge the gap between basic science books and the highly advanced published literature and is intended to serve as a comprehensive reference for the field of cosmetic science. It covers all the major aspects of cosmetic formu-lation and technology at both fundamental and practical levels. In this regard, this book aims at broadening the readers’ knowledge and introduces them to the intrigu-ing world of cosmetics and personal care products. It is designed to provide a basic understanding of cosmetics and personal care products, including their regulation, main characteristics, ingredients, formulation, testing, and packaging, with the pri-mary focus on the products available in the United States.

This book is divided into seven chapters. The first two chapters are concerned with general concepts and basic definitions and include an overview of the current legislation covering cosmetics and drugs in the United States. The next five chapters discuss the various types of color cosmetics and personal care products. The most beneficial way to discuss products used in our everyday lives is by application sur-face and function. This book is organized in such a manner. Chapter 3 focuses on the various types of skin care products, including skin cleansing products, skin moisturiz-ing products, products for special skin concerns, such as aging and acne, sunscreens, as well deodorants and antiperspirants. Chapter 4 relates to makeup products for the lips, eyes, face, and nails. Chapter 5 discusses various products applied to the hair, including hair cleansing products and conditioners, hair styling products, and hair coloring products. Chapter 6 provides an overview of dental and oral care products, including toothpaste and mouthwash. Finally, Chapter 7 discusses smaller, but sig-nificant, product categories, including hair removal products, sunless tanners, baby products, and feminine hygiene products.
Each of these five chapters focusing on various products follows the same struc-ture and includes an overview of the structure and function of the relevant application surfaces; basic principles relevant to the chapter; types and definition of various prod-ucts related to the chapter; history of product use; how the products may affect the application surfaces; required qualities and characteristics of products and consumer needs; an overview of the main ingredients, characteristics, and formulation of the products; typical quality problems related to the formulation and/or use of products; product testing and, finally, packaging.
Each chapter of this textbook features a unique structure to enhance the readers’ experience and facilitate the learning process. At the beginning of each section is a list of learning objectives telling the readers what important information they will be expected to know after reading and studying the chapter. The terms they will need to know in each section are also provided at the beginning of the section in a box. Throughout the text, brief “Did you know?” paragraphs draw attention to interesting information that will enhance the understanding of the material in the text. FYI (For Your Information) boxes direct readers to a particular website or other resource for further information. Each section ends with questions designed to test the readers’ understanding of the section’s information. The answers to these review questions can be found at the end of the book. All key terms and their definitions are included in a glossary of terms at the end of each section.
The wide variety of topics found in this book should benefit a large audience interested in cosmetic science, including undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, students in beauty schools, and those concerned with regulation, sales, and marketing of cosmetics and personal care products. The up-to-date and com-prehensive content of this book may also be of interest to the non-specialist reader. Finally, it is our hope that this book would serve as a standard textbook for cosmetic science education.
